It's been such a long time since I've done a 'This Week' post. Sometimes all I want to do is sit down and write about what's been going on in my life over the past week and sharing some of my recent thoughts and feelings. Blogging doesn't have any rules.
I got back from a little beach holiday about two hours away from where I live - a childhood holiday place and somewhere which feels like my second home. It was nice to just go away to a different environment, even if I didn't get up to much more than reading and walking around, before Uni starts again in a little over a week (crap, I feel so unequipped for this). I had limited Internet, didn't wear make-up for a week, and watched old Disney movies like Bedknobs and Broomsticks (Oh my god, who actually remembers this?). There's something good about getting out of your usual life for a few days and doing things you wouldn't usually do.
Going make-up free was nice. The first few days my skin was looking good and it felt nice to not have to deal with it, but it was kind of ruined by the fact I began eating way too much cheese and chocolate. Not constantly being on my phone and checking up on everything was both good and bad. Good because I could just appreciate things like nature, board games, and watching previously stated Disney movies.
I decided to take a week off blogging while I was away so I could come back roaring and ready to go. Now let me tell you, going away motivated me to get organised with my blogging and general life. I am planning to go out and buy a 2016 diary tomorrow (don't even tell me what the date is), I've written down five revised resolutions, and I've even decided to start BUDGETING. Who am I? Not going to lie, this is probably down to reading this book during my time away.
I can't even fathom how different life is going to be in a couple of weeks. I really should start binge-watching all of those TV series I promised myself I would watch before summer began.
